Option 5 : E

Eight persons - A, B, C, D, E, F, G and H

Floor - 1 to 4, Flat - 1 and 2

1) There are two floor between B and C. B lives above C. So here two possibilities for this.

Case - I | Case - II | |||

Floor | Flat -1 | Flat -2 | Flat - 1 | Flat - 2 |

4 | B | B | ||

3 | ||||

2 | ||||

1 | C | C |

2) A lives just west of D but on odd number of floor. So, here remaining odd number floor is number 3. F lives just above C

Case - I | Case - II | |||

Floor | Flat -1 | Flat -2 | Flat - 1 | Flat - 2 |

4 | B | B | ||

3 | A | D | A | D |

2 | F | F | ||

1 | C | C |

3) No person lives west of G who lives on fourth floor.

In Case - II B lives on flat - 1 so G lives between flat - 2, So here B lives west of G. It contradict the given condition no person lives west of G so here Case - II gets cancelled.

Case - I | ||

Floor | Flat -1 | Flat -2 |

4 | G | B |

3 | A | D |

2 | F | |

1 | C |

4) H does not live on floor number one. So H will live on floor number 2. There is only one place remaining for the E, on floor number 1.

Case - I | ||

Floor | Flat -1 | Flat -2 |

4 | G | B |

3 | A | D |

2 | F | H |

1 | C | E |

Hence, **E** lives just below H.
